Yummy! I did 3 infusions at the same settings. I used 2 1/2 tbsp for a 12 oz pot which is half of what Tea Trekker recommended. Using the amount they suggested would have used up my whole sample which was supposedly 14 grams!

Very smooth with a classic black tea flavor — somewhat like a Darljeeling if memory serves. A little astringency creeps in as the tea cools down. The third infusion was not too flavorful, so I think two was optimal.

I happily reside in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband, our baby son, and our dog. I teach over 40 piano students per week at my home studio and created “Fundamental Keys”, a classical piano method book and video series.

My husband and I are vegan and have been for about 8 years. We are enjoying bringing up our little one in the vegan tradition!

I went through a major tea phase some years ago (2006-2009) and had quite a collection and tasted hundreds of varieties. Then I went off caffeine when I decided to have a baby, and after he was born I got into a nasty coffee habit. Now I’ve come back to tea, thank goodness. I’m finding my tastes have changed quite a bit since my first go at tea fanaticism. Really enjoying some of the amazing and deliciously complex teas I’ve learned about through Steepster!
